World Cup: He’s different – Walcott names England star to nullify Mbappe

Former Arsenal star, Theo Walcott has said France’s main man, Kylian Mbappe would struggle against the physicality of England defender Kyle Walker.

England is already looking forward to playing France in the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Qatar with their round of sixteen clash with Senegal coming up on Sunday.

Bookmakers believe that Senegal will not stop England from progressing to the next level while France would brush Australia aside in the next round.

Mbappe has been tipped to become the most dangerous player in Qatar and the PSG star has already netted 3 times in 3 games.

“I would love to see it. I really would,” Walcott said when asked whether Walker should man-mark Mbappe.

“I feel like Mbappe would struggle against his [Walker’s] physicality, if I’m honest.

“So it would be a great test. I think we all want to see it.

“I couldn’t tell you who would win that – because Mbappe is a different beast, he’s on a different level at the moment.”
